One of the most important things to understand about mold is that you can find mold spores practically everywhere, even in a supposedly “clean” home or business. Mold spores are living both inside and outside right now, floating in the air. Individual spores are so small that you can not see them with your naked eye – what you see when you see “mold” or “mildew” are large colonies of the spores concentrated together.
Another important point about mold is that there more than one type of mold out there: a lot more. In fact, there are more than 100,000 types of known species of mold. Many are harmless to humans, while some (like the highly-publicized black mold and “toxic” mold) can cause serious health problems.
Mold growth thrives on the presence of moisture. Here in Florida, that means that mold and mildew can grow at any time during the year. In the event of a flood or some other type of water incursion in your home or business, mold can start to grow and then spread within 48 to 72 hours.
If you think you might have a growing mold problem, you want experts who you can trust to come and test to find out if you indeed do have a problem. If a problem does exist, you want to trust that it will be remediated and the affected areas removed and replaced fully and correctly the first time.
